One of the greatest guru of present time who leaves to the age of 109 years from King Rama 5-9 era.
Born on 15th April BE2437 at Ban Jan district, Sisaket province to farmer parents. He was a novice monk at the age of 14 and practiced Buddhism under the guidance of Phra Acharn Sida, the abbot of Wat Ban Jan before ordaining as a monk in BE2460 at the age of 23.
In his life time of monkhood, Luang Phor Moon traveled extensively around the region as well as neighboring countries for his forest-dwelling (Tudong) seeking great gurus who can teach him
more on Dharma and Magical practices.
He spented more than 50 years meeting many great gurus and inherited the skill of making sacred powder (Phong Itijie, Phong Puttakun, Phong Trini Singhe, Phong Patamung and Phong Maha Raj) especially from Phra Acharn Si Chantasiri, who was from the same linage of Somdej Phra Puttakjan Toh, Wat Rakang temple. These five sacred powders were important ingredients for making effective amulets.
